Default Are Travel Irons Allowed In Cabin?

I suspect travel irons aren't allowed....due to fire hazard? Do you happen to know? My clothes always look terrible after two days crammed in suitcase - multi-leg flights and TSA inspections.

Thanks!

Try packing all your good clothes in the plastic cleaner bags, usually no need for ironing then. What cruiseline are you on? Both Carnival and Princess have self service laundry rooms with ironing boards and irons for passengers to use.

You are correct: Travel irons are not allowed.

Donna has given you the best advice. Or you could do what I do. Just be wrinkled.

Take care,
Mike

Also, turn on the shower to HOT and steam them away, or take a small hand held steamer.

Shame on you, wasting water like that. I hang what I'm wearing that night in the bathroom while I'm in the shower, extra stubborn stay until after hubby showers. Hand held steamers also work well.

A small squirt bottle of Downey Wrinkle Release comes in handy too.


Who knows.........if you use it with the balcony door open you may end up looking 10yrs younger too !!
